Motorhead - "Sympathy for the Devil"

Motorhead don't usually fit in with what we cover here, but I'm a huge fan, and it's a cover, so why the hell not, right? To close out their upcoming album, Motorhead are covering The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil." It's the most obvious choice for any metal band due to the nature and title of the song. It's kind of almost a cliche at this point. But Motorhead practically invented every cliche in metal and hard rock, so they can rock this all they want. It's exactly what you would expect in Motorhead covering The Stones', which is a great thing. Even if you only want to listen ironically, you'll probably end up loving this song. That is the power of Lemmy.

Bad Magic is due out this Friday, August 28. You can listen to "Sympathy for the Devil" below. Make sure you go to Motorhead's website for tour dates. They are a must-see live.
